Conference Chair's Introduction

John Mears

A Platform for Progress

Biometrics, identity management technologies, applications, public understanding,resulting policies and laws are all evolving rapidly, though often not at the same pace and not consistently.In political campaigns, leaders try to clarify and differentiate their positions on issues of the day by creating a “platform” with “planks” representing an approach to each issue.In an analogous fashion, though perhaps more logically, this opening address will posit a “platform” to navigate the diverse and often conflicting forces that sometimes impede or propel progress as we enter the third decade of the 21st century.

Star Alliance Biometrics Hub: A Digital Identity Platform for Passenger Journey

Visitors to the United States now enjoy frictionless boarding in many airports today using U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Traveler Verification Service (TVS).Last summer, the Star Alliance announced plans for a global Biometrics Hub, offeringsimilar capabilities to consenting enrolled passengers of the alliance’s 26 member airlines using the Star Digital Identity Platform.This keynote presentation will introduce basics of the program, key processes and the technology behind the scenes.

From Fake to Facts

Every written piece of dis-information and deep fake liked and shared online, puts a little dent in the fabric of trust of the Internet’s users. In 2020, what is the form of lies, and how far can they travel? What role do our phones, apps and social media play in this? Finally, what does this mean for you and me? A whirlwind through the modern use and abuse of the Internet, this keynote argues there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Anonymity and Technology: Defining Privacy In The Age of Biometrics 

Professor Turley will present aspects of his study on biometrics and privacy, specifically addressing why he believes current privacy laws and cases are becoming increasingly anachronistic and irrelevant.Professor Turley will discuss how our concept of privacy must change in light of the new transparency brought about by this technology.He will show how countries, particularly the United States, must shift from notions of anonymity to obscurity to protect core privacy values, particularly as they related to the democratic process.
Jean Francois Lennon

Identity Management as a Service at the age of Biometrics and Privacy by Design

How can governments become the pivotal actor of the digital identity revolution? This presentation will give an insight on the increasingly important role of Identity-Management-as-a-Service platforms, managed by governments themselves or by travel industry stakeholders. It will also provide some light to the future crucial role of Digital Identity and the pivotal role of biometrics and data protection schemes in a multi-stakeholder ecosystem.
Panel discussion

Keynote Panel - Biometrics, Identity, Policy: How Can we Get it Right?

The widespread adoption of facial recognition and, biometrics in general, has raised concerns about privacy and anonymity, rooted in moral and legalphilosophies. These are matters of opinion on which many people disagree, and should be settled in the public sphere, with robust debate informed by facts and evidence. Our prominent speakers will guide us in resolving these important issues.
